A woman has terrified people after sharing her "creepy" discovery when she pulled up the carpet in her home and found a nasty surprise.
In the clip, TikTok user @dontbeanashhole shows herself lifting the rug and looking at the bare floorboards.
There is a pen outline of a human body on the floor, and next to it there is a note written in a thicker pen giving the "case number" and the date of January 19, 2018.
She joked: "I wasn't bothered knowing someone had died in my new house, but imagine my surprise when I ripped up the floor and found this".
"Okay but this is actually a little creepy," she added.
Predictably, the clip has spooked people after being watched more than a 4.8million times and leading to all sorts of theories about what could have happened.
Some people thought it was the location of a dead body and told the TikToker to do some research.
"Yeah that's a body stain," commented one user.
A second freaked-out person wrote: "Oh man that's crazy."
Someone else recommended: "Pour peroxide on the stain. If it bubbles it is blood. If it is you need to get out of your house. Blood pathogens are very dangerous."

Meanwhile, other people found the whole setup a bit suspect and reckoned it was a prank being played on the homeowner by someone who was living there or laying the carpet before.
One said: "Y'all are gullible that's not even the right proportions of a human body."
"That's not how they outline bodies lmao," wrote a second person.
A third user reckoned: "Whoever installed the carpet drew that to freak out whoever removed the carpet.
"We did this to our old house before we put laminate down. It's a joke."
But in an update, the homeowner filmed herself spraying the suspicious stain with peroxide and white foamy bubbles appeared, indicating it was blood.
The normal-looking patch of floor did not make any bubbles when sprayed.
Blood contains the peroxidase enzyme which converts peroxide into water and oxygen, which is what makes the bubbles appear.
